This week is all about positive affirmation. Maybe we should've done this in the beginning, but I think it will be beneficial.
One of the things I struggle with in life, especially in my ward in Land of the Barbies, is feeling good about myself. Self-esteem issues abound. But y'know, I know I'm a good person. Not to be stuck up or anything, but I do know that I'm pretty. And I know that my inside matters more than my outside, but I'd like my outside to be healthy.
I want you to write a positive, uplifting sentence about yourself and say it to yourself every day. It doesn't have to be long. It doesn't have to be complicated. Heck, you can take a page from Stuart Smalley and say, "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like me!"
Try and keep it phrased in a positive way. Like, "I am smart and beautiful and strong." Or, "I am improving my health and well-being." NOT, "I'm not the brightest bulb in the box, but I do okay, and I'm no dogface ... but I don't wanna be fat anymore." Make sense?
You don't have to share your affirmation here with the class, but please write it down. On paper. With a pen or pencil.
Baby crying. gotta go. Good luck!
